A New Pair From Borg & Beck

Since the successful launch of the Borg & Beck braking programme in February, the main focus of activity has now moved onto range development to ensure that the programme remains up-to-date and relevant. Particularly noteworthy among these developments is the introduction of a range of matching original equipment quality pre-assembled brake shoe kits.

Borg & Beck brake shoe kits save workshops both time and money as each kit contains all the components the job requires in a pre-assembled form supplied in a single box. This reduces installation time and the labour rate for the technician and also reduces the risk of ordering the wrong parts as each kit has a single reference number.

Although most of the applications for the kits are for older vehicles because brake shoe/drum technology dropped out of favour with the vehicle manufacturers about 10-15 years ago, for economic reasons there has been somewhat of a renaissance in the last 5 years.

As a result, the range of almost 100 part numbers also includes brake shoe kits for the Citroen C1/Peugeot 1007/Toyota Yaris ’05 onwards, Vauxhall Corsa ‘06 onwards, Toyota Yaris ‘06 onwards, Citroen Nemo/Peugeot Bippa ’08 onwards and Ford Fiesta ‘08 onwards.

As Borg & Beck strongly recommends that workshops always replace braking components in pairs, each kit consists of two pre-assembled shoe sets, two cylinders, a set of hold down springs and clips and a sachet of grease.
